Points to think about when choosing your school ball theme

What ball theme to choose is one of the most important decisions you make as a ball committee.  So I've put together some points to consider when choosing your ball theme.  Give me a call to discuss any ball theme ideas you have - however crazy or out there - about any of the points below.

Choosing a venue

  • Choose a venue which best suits your theme and number of people eg Masquerade and Phantom of the Opera would be great at The Performing Arts Centre, Las Vegas , Casino Royale could be at the Sky City Casino (or a western saloon as you can see here) in Hamilton and the Race Course here is generic & can be adapted to most themes

Make a grand entrance

  • Start with the entrance and make it exciting to give a grand first impression to your Ball -  e.g. the entrance could have two large oil burning flares, two giant Oscars, a grand Archway [all of which I have lots of options to choose from - e.g. the Roman archway shown).

 Position your props for maximum effect

  • Place your props in strategic areas so they are in your face and will ‘wow’ the guests on entering [use uplighting & don’t hide things around the corner] or the money you have invested is not used to its best advantage.
  • Atmospheric room lighting will set the scene and is a necessity - if your budget is tight go for atmospheric lighting first [turn light on Oscar]
  • Overhead props and tall props are great as they are not blocked when the guests arrive.  Eg Chandeliers, tall Roman columns, tall table centerpieces, archways
